Famous Quotes 2 for Country View Challenges

This is my second piece for the CVC challenge and was inspired by the PaperArtsy day I attended a few weeks ago.
I have used a size 10 tag, metal card, fresco finish paints and Lynne Perrella stamps and the quote comes from HP10004EZ hot pick set.
The background was made using butternut, honey dew, eggplant, mermaid and guacamole opaque paints, blending them together with a piece of foam. I stamped the feathers from the LPC007 collection in coffee archival then heat dried them and knocked them back with more of the same colour paints. When it was dry I scraped metallic glaze over it with an old credit card.
The focal part of the tag is a piece of the metal card, embossed and painted with FF paints with treasure gold colours added to the raised parts. I stamped this lovely small image onto card I had already coloured up with DIs and a pedestal I found in my bits box.
I used downloaded butterflies to add more interest…..
….. and I bunched flowers together and overlapped them onto the quote to bring everything together.
I think this quote comes from one by Abraham Lincoln who said “The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time”. So true.
The trouble is the days seem to go two or three at a time.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by to see what I have been making.
